There have been short video clips spoofing Los Angeles County's relatively new condom mandate (Measure B) for porn production.

But one brave adult-video house, Zero Tolerance, went ahead an made a full-length XXX film about the most-hated law in Porn Valley.

Measure X, the studio says, ...

... pokes fun at the real life adult industry crisis in Los Angeles County where the Measure B 'condom law' is infringing upon the rights and freedoms of performers and producers by requiring mandatory condom use.

We took a look at the back of the "box," which features teaser photos of some of the action: We can assure you, no condoms were harmed in the making of this film -- at least when it came to the actual sex scenes.

[Warning: Possibly NSFW]:

All proceeds from the film, produced with volunteer work from the crew, will go to the industry lobbying group Free Speech Coalition's efforts to fight Measure B, the mandatory condom law approved by voters in November.

The trailer makes the movie out to be a little silly. But then again, adult features where the actors are actually reading lines always seem a little silly to us.

The footage, and the industry in general, depicts the law as one that would require all manner of safety gear for adult performers, which isn't the case: It's just about condoms and safe sex. That, at least, is what AIDS Healthcare Foundation, the organization that spearheaded the law, says.

The movie, says X Biz, is about ...

... a corrupt politician responsible for the passage of a mandatory condom law that puts the adult industry under siege from "bumbling condom police."

(Interestingly, the person behind the passage of the real Measure B is you, the voter).

There's even a behind-the-scenes mini-doc about the making of Measure X. It will air on the 3Sixty Network, says Zero Tolerance.

Domenick Bongiorno, the man in charge of the film's distribution, says:

It's important for people to know that every dime of proceeds from this film will go to fund the legal battle over Measure B. The law negatively affects everyone involved with adult film, from the performers all the way to the consumer, so we need to take a stand.

Zero Tolerance might have made a bigger point if they had used condoms during the sex scenes: The industry argues that consumers won't buy condom porn. Here was a chance to prove how bad it allegedly is.

Meanwhile the AIDS Healthcare Foundation this week announced that it filed its first complaint over an allegedly illicit, condom-free porn shoot in the county. It'll be interesting to see how the group, concerned about STDs, will react to this movie.

Seems like Zero Tolerance is begging for a fight with the AIDS group.
